Tottenham strolled to a 3-0 victory over Everton as Goodison Park thanks to a Harry Kane brace and Christian Eriksen’s first half strike. Mauricio Pochettino’s opted for a back three and it more than paid off as Spurs swept past the Toffees with ease. So how did the visitors perform individually?

Hugo Lloris, 6
Can’t recall him having a meaningful save to make. Almost gifted Everton a goal with a stray pass.
Toby Alderweireld, 6
Booked early for a clumsy challenge but Everton didn’t take advantage of that, barely troubling him all afternoon.
Davinson Sanchez, 7
A really promising debut in the centre of the back three. Used his pace to prevent balls in behind leading to anything.
Jan Vertonghen, 7
Perhaps had the least to do of the defenders, which is saying something. A very peaceful afternoon for the Belgian.
Kieran Trippier, 6
Didn’t produce many dangerous deliveries but was much more comfortable on the ball than he was against Burnley or Chelsea.
Eric Dier, 7
Nothing spectacular but passed the ball beautifully and kept Spurs ticking. Was given plenty of room to do so by Everton, it must be said.
Moussa Sissoko, 6
Worked hard and drove forward whenever possible, but his final product was wayward, as was his touch. Better than usual.
Ben Davies, 8
Brilliantly effective going forward. His searing shot led to the second goal and it was his cross that Kane converted for the third.
Christian Eriksen, 8
Scored the second goal and pulled the strings for Spurs. Unlucky not to score a volley after a wonderfully worked one-two with Kane.
Dele Alli, 7
Played a part in most attacks. Slick in possession and scrappy off the ball. Did everything but score really.
Harry Kane, 8
It’s September, so of course he scored. Didn’t mean the first one but took his second clinically. Showed quality on the ball throughout.
Mousa Dembele, 6
Replaced Eriksen with 20 minutes left and helped the team see out the game.
Harry Winks, N/A
Came on in the 78th minute for Sissoko, who limped off. Blocked a late Gylfi Sigurdsson effort.
Heung-Min Son, N/A
His 85th minute arrival allowed Kane to receive a standing ovation.
